Back of ornament- where the writing will go

I had my room mom come in and glue all the materials together.
Then, students write their names on the ornament and I write the year!

I took a picture of the kids with a Santa hat on in front of our school Christmas tree. 
I hot glued the picture to the front of the CD.

I didn't get pictures, but I set up 6 kids at my back table at one time.
They painted on glue around their pictures.
Then, I sprinkled glitter around their pictures!
